Based on a true story, this seriocomic French film by writer-directors Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano earned international raves for its two stars ... veteran actor Francois Cluzet as a rich aristocrat suddenly incapacitated while paragliding, and Omar Sy (who won the Cesar, France's equivalent of the Oscar, as best actor for this) as the much younger and more street-wise fellow hired to care for him.
Though others are in the cast, the picture very much belongs to those actors, and their unlikely yet fabulous teamwork justifies it. DVD extras: deleted scenes. *** (R: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray)
